The embassy of Ukraine in the USA has urged Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to remove products with the symbols of the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" ("DPR") terrorist organization. "The embassy of Ukraine in the USA sent an official letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos with a strong request to remove products emblazoned with the symbols of the self-proclaimed terrorist republic 'Donetsk People's Republic' ('DPR') from the Amazon website," the embassy said on Facebook.
"Additionally, the embassy appealed to the management of eBay Inc. to take the same measures regarding the products with the symbols of 'DPR' and 'LPR' (the self-proclaimed terrorist republic 'Luhansk People's Republic')."
"Moreover, the Ukrainian Embassy brought the aforementioned situation to the attention of the US Department of State, the Department of Commerce and the Department of the Treasury," the embassy added.
Earlier, acting Health Minister Ulana Suprun launched a flashmob online to persuade Amazon to stop selling products "emblazoned with symbols of the self-proclaimed terrorist republic DPR".
